Remembering a powerful
presence in local medicine
Reading the recent death notice of Dr. Walter Lawrence Jr. was sad but mostly instructive as a life well-lived. While I had little contact with him at the Medical College of Virginia during my training — I was on the medical side, and he was a surgeon — his name always was in the air.
In later years, we should all remember him as a wise contributor to these letters, providing reasoned input on important health care issues of the day. Godspeed, Dr. Lawrence.
